Event details

The University of Southampton Music Department present the first event of a weekend of performances and workshops exploring musical loops. For details of other events, please see listings at the base of this page.

Opening this lunchtime concert is a performance of J.C. Bach’s elegant Piano Sonata in D Major (Op. 5, Nr. 2). This sonata was used by Mozart to develop the Piano Concerto that will be performed on the Sunday evening of The Loop Project. Mozart both orchestrates and repeats the original material, masterfully manipulating and looping J.C. Bach’s Sonata.

Lutenist and Head of Early Music at Southampton Elizabeth Kenny will then lead an ensemble of undergraduate and postgraduate performers in Ciaccona, a looping ground bass for two violins and continuo by the early seventeenth-century Italian composer Tarquinio Merula.

Finally, MOBO-award winning jazz pianist and composer Ivo Neame will perform a solo set featuring his own material. Ivo is one member of the guest jazz trio who will perform Benjamin Oliver’s Loop Concerto on Sunday evening. Ivo is developing a reputation as one of the most exciting and original pianists to emerge in some time. Well known as the pianist with Phronesis and with Norwegian saxophonist Marius Neset, his most recent release ‘Strata’ saw him reach new heights as a composer leading a quintet in a set of exuberant and creative originals.
